Looking for an alternative to running on hard road / footpath surfaces? We have the perfect solution. Centennial Park features Sydney’s first permanent orienteering course!

Orienteering is a great sport that has actually been part of Centennial Parklands rich sporting history for over 40 years. Only last year, however, were we able to create a permanent course. Find out more here.

Or for more detailed information on orienteering, visit the Orienteering NSW website.
